about

World History Seattle, Washington

Neil Campau began World History in the winter of 2006, writing and collaborating aboard several boats in Seattle. These are genuine, hungry, thoughtful folk songs with a hint of anarchist anti-politics and many a laughing, stomping, yelping singalong. World History's final show was in March of 2012. Neil Campau has a new project called "Electrician". ... more

Track Name: Destruction Keeps You Young
People don't know how to give
There aren't many places that nobody claims
And nobody's sorry and nobody's right
I'll burn down their houses in the middle of the night

I have no demands or negotiations
The crowd is getting older, with our ears on the ground
And nobody's worries and nobody wins
People don't know how to give
Track Name: You're a Machine (alt. ver.)
Involuntary movement
Put on your corset, put on your corset
to support your abdomen
You're a machine and everyone believes you

They're all the same
Put on your corset, put on your corset
to support your abdomen
You're afraid of everyone but him

Involuntary movement
Put on your corset, put on your corset
to support your abdomen
You're a machine and everyone loves you
Track Name: Swimming
And you're staring at the water
and it seems awfully sad
It captures you briefly, as your raise up your hands
Those pink and healthy fingers in the thick and gassy air
You bring beauty
You bring it all

As you're walking straight and fluid
like your knees were made of wood
Planted in a garden of sticks and grass and mud
And your toes are made of ashes
And you're bringing back the good
You bring beauty
You bring beauty
You bring beauty
Track Name: Social War
I'll go with you and you'll never have to leave me behind
But you're not around
and I don't expect you to be
It's social ware here
It's social ware here
It's social ware here
It's social ware here
And we're clapping our hands
because we're seeing other people
